“The Radio City Rockettes are proud to participate in the 58th Presidential Inaugural,” MSG said in a statement to THR. “For a Rockette to be considered for an event, they must voluntarily sign up and are never told they have to perform at a particular event, including the inaugural. It is always their choice. In fact, for the coming inauguration, we had more Rockettes request to participate than we have slots available. We eagerly await the inaugural celebrations.”
